Will you be happy living in Belize?
Belize is one of the best options for living or retiring overseas. It has a lot to offer, but is it the right place for you?
There Are Two Main Lifestyle Options In Belize:
1. The Mountains
Cayo is a great option in the mountains of Belize. It’s a little higher than sea level so the weather is a little cooler here compared to other areas. Cayo is where you go to be in the countryside of Belize and be self-sufficient. The main town in Cayo is San Ignacio. Here you’ll find supplies, stores, and an expat community. Although it’s not fully developed, Cayo is attracting more and more people.
2. The Ocean
Ambergris Caye is a popular destination. However, if you don’t like to live on an island, it might not be for you. A plus of Ambergris Caye is that there are hundreds of expats so you’ll have a strong community of like-minded folks and lots of amenities for expats. Ambergris Caye is known for diving and snorkeling, it’s the place to be if you like to be near water.
Other popular destinations in Belize include Placencia, Northern Belize, and Corozal. The areas aren’t as developed but more and more expats are moving there.
A great plan is to switch your time between the mountains and the beach areas. This is very easy to do because Belize has a great, reliable, and affordable internal network of flights. In this way, it’s very possible to embrace the many faces of Belize.
